Brexit minister has secret meeting with Luxembourg… and it will infuriate EU

17 May

But Mr Jones met with the finance minister, members of parliament and representatives of Luxembourg’s financial sector behind closed door on April 24, according to Luxemburger Wort. 

The meetings were not publicly announced and details have not emerged, however a spokesman for the ministry confirmed it saying: “Pierre Gramegna met David Jones on April 24 following an initiative by the British ambassador. 

“The ambassador was present as well. The discussions included an exchange of views on the situation after Brexit and the pending negotiations.” 

It also came just days before an EU summit where members discussed an agreement on a joint strategy for dealing with negotiations, whereby bloc members said they would not “undercut” the Union.

The guideline stated: “Negotiations under Article 50 TEU will be conducted in transparency and as a single package. 

“Throughout these negotiations the Union will maintain its unity and act as one with the aim of reaching a result that is fair and equitable for all Member States and in the interest of its citizens.
